No it does not have the spider wheels and that will be one of the desirable mods. Crucially it's a manual car. The 335d hire car I am driving around in is very very nice, but I have concluded that I strongly prefer manual gearboxes.
Hence I decided not to buy this, which looks a really nice car: Blue 335d Touring
Instead I have gone for this one instead: Black 530d
I know the wood trim won't be to everyone's taste, but I can live with it. I managed to get a good few quid off as I think the asking price is very strong money for a private sale.
